Angiomyolipoma (AML) is a rare mesenchymal tumour arising from perivascular epithelioid cells. It is most commonly seen in kidney, but rarely AML can arise in extra renal sites. Adrenal AML is a very rare clinical entity, and very few cases have been reported so far. We present our experience with a 43-year-old female, who presented with right flank pain. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a right adrenal mass. Laparoscopic adrenelectomy was performed, and the histopathology report confirmed the diagnosis of AML. Patient was discharged uneventfully.
